Volunteer Request Vancouver to Whistler GranFondo

Hello friends, Here’s a callout for vollies for the GranFondo. For those of you who haven’t heard about it, it’s a road bike ride from Vancouver to Whistler on Saturday, September 11, 2010. We sold out in March with 4000 people registered. To make this happen, we are creating a cycling lane for the entire 122km distance. It’s a big undertaking, and we will need about 400 volunteers to pull it off. I know some of you are already registered, or may be helping out already, but in either case, you may know someone who might want to get involved. Something we’ve added for volunteer perks is the “Front of the line for next year” opportunity. Volunteers from this 2010 event who would like to ride in the RBC GranFondo Whistler in 2011 will get first crack (along with Founding Riders) at registering in the week of September 13-19. Registration is open to the general public at noon on Sept 20, so it’s a guaranteed entry. Even though we’re opening up more spots for 2011, we do expect them to go fairly quickly. Regardless, it will be a special day for this inaugural event and we need some excellent people to make it happen. Please help me spread the word that volunteers are needed. And if you are really keen and feel the urge to go gather us up some volunteers on your own, we are willing to offer a FREE 2010 entry for the RBC GranFondo Whistler to anyone who can provide us with 20 volunteers. Contact me directly if you are interested in taking on this challenge of rounding them up. We really don’t want to be short on people, so any help you can offer is appreciated. Spreading the word counts as helping! Thanks, and have a great summer! Kevin Thomson

Volunteer Dates: September 10th, 11th or 12th
